Your remarks about gender vs. sex reminds me of a portion of the supreme court
hearings re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's nomination. When she did her landmark work
on gender-based discrimination, she originally kept talking about "sex". One
of her female colleagues suggested she use "gender" instead since she was
addressing an all-male panel for whom the repeated use of the word "sex" may
create too many mental distractions regardless of the fine-line differences
in meaning......cstefanick
